     First day of the workshop brought exciting explorations into force and motion. Workshop Presenter,  Kelly Chapman led off with some warm up activities and incorporated a Kahoot quiz. Participants explored gravitational forces with clay and paper drop and  a Bugso - Copter activity. This activity reviewed independent and dependent variables. We ventured over to meet physicist Mandy Rominski and engineer Lucy Nobrega from Fermilab.  The  Q & A centered on what it was like to work at Fermilab and what were their childhood educational experiences that led them to this career.
      After lunch the group met with Susan Dahl to learn about the TRC and how it can support teachers. Kelly presented posters and discussed attributes of an engineer. We proceeded to continue our exploration of force and motion using our ramps and rollers equipment. The day was capped off buy our docent, Julie Albert giving us a tour of the interactive exhibits in the Lederman Science Center.
